It is almost a year now since I was in the accident and was charged with Impaired Driving. There are times when life is so friggan frustrating. I am still not sure when I will be driving again, although I could have been driving if I had a vehicle that I could install an interlock device in. But my vehicle is still not repaired – I don’t have the $8,000.00 it will take to repair it.
The other day, I walked about 10KM (6 miles). My feet and legs ached. All to get me and my son a haircut. At least it was not raining, and the weather is warming up in my part of the world.
I look back on this year, and although I realize that driving and drinking is a serious offense, I sometimes wonder if the penalties are too harsh. The financial and personal hardship that results from an Impaired Driving charge are enormous and life ruining.
